Sorry, but there is no way they're going to have a bunch of guys with glue-on beards and bushy eyebrows appear as klingons.

They're spending $150 million on this thing, the make-up won't be 1960's TV.

If there are klingons in this movie they will look like TNG or the movie klingons.

BOTH! We now know that the Klingons who did not have the ridges were genetically engineered and in a way seized some of the power of the Klingon Empire. In Kirks day there were still Klingons with ridges, we just did not see them, does not mean they did not exist. To have some kind of power struggle between the two Klingon races would be great. So I say BOTH.

@ section9 yea no doubt, the clothing that the Duras sistesr wore, Klingon cleavage...where is the blood wine!

New. The whole Puerto Rican look just wasn't scary enough. And those teeth were WAY too clean, lol.

Definitely ALL the looks. Smoothies, ridged ones from TNG, crested ones from ST-1, all those varied forehead shapes from ST-VI. Hell, let's have some tatooed and bodypainted foreheads, too. Painted faces as well. Cornrows, beads in hair, Predator-like haircuts. Give them some variety!

Seconded! When you think of the variety of people and viewpoints just among humans, imagine the infinite variety among people of all races!!

I intentionally didn't mention piercing, as piercing doesn't make much sense for fighters. Especially facial piercing. It would weaken the overall structure of skin and tissue, causing nasty wounds when hit.
But, well, I guess some piercing would OK as well.

Or perhaps some individually carved foreheads, laced with gemstones and metal bands - that would be truly original and quite well within Klingon measures of taste.
